A picture is slowly emerging of the six people killed in a deadly Ottawa bus crash and the effect the accident is having on the community. One day after a double-decker bus collided with a Via Rail train during a morning commute into Ottawa, police have identified the victims and loved ones are sharing their stories.
“Our thoughts are with the victims, their friends and families,” Ottawa police said on Thursday, as others joined in with their own support.
The first victim identified was 45-year-old bus driver Dave Woodard, who was behind the wheel at the time of the crash. Now, the remaining five have been identified.
They are students, workers and government employees, cast together by a morning commute gone horribly wrong. They have been identified as Ottawa residents Michael Bleakney, 57, Connor Boyd, 21, Karen Krzyzewski, 53, Kyle Nash, 21, and Rob More, 35.
Here is what we know about those killed in the crash.
